The prosecution produced a medical report during the session rebuffing claims that police tortured defendants Mohammed Gaiez al-Sabah and Mohammed Rubaa Addallah in order to extract confessions.
“The report found that the police had nothing to do with the injuries on the bodies of the defendants,” a prosecutor told the high state security court hearing the case.
It added that the report concluded that “the injuries were normal and not the result of torture”.
The accused men had alleged last month that police tortured them to force them to confess to carrying out the bombings that killed 34 people at the Hilton hotel in Taba and two other Sinai resorts on 7 October 2004.

Defence lawyer Said Fathi questioned the veracity of the report and asked the presiding judge to allow him to study it.
The defendants are charged with “premeditated murder, failure to surrender themselves, determination to assassinate Israeli tourists … terrorism and resisting the authorities during arrests”.
A third suspect, Mohammed Ahmed Salah Felifel, was killed by police at the beginning of the month.
